Overview

A Morning for Flamingos (Dave Robicheaux Series #4) by James Lee Burke

Cajun police detective Dave Robicheaux knows the Sonnier family of New Iberia -- their connections to the CIA, the mob, and to a former Klansman now running for state office. And he knows their past -- as dark and murky as a night on the Louisiana bayou.


An assassination attempt and the death of a cop draw Robicheaux into the Sonniers' dangerous web of madness, murder and incest. But Robicheaux has devils of his own. And they've come out of hiding to destroy the tormented investigator -- and the people he holds most dear.


Filled with the usual Burke combination of brilliant action and a stunning novelistic theme, A Stained White Radiance will keep Burke's fans riveted -- and win him many new ones.

I'm reading these in order and am completely hooked on the Robicheaux series and the character himself. Admittedly flawed, always willing to put himself in harm's way for others, doggedly determined, and fighting the good fights....what's not to like? Throw in Burke's writing style, which is simply great and characters added or revisiting from other novels - all with depth and "realness" to them, and you have a winning series and one of our great mystery/thriller writers.

Dave Robicheaux is simmering with pent up rage from a near death experience and sets out to make it right . Along the way he looks up some old friends we thought were no longer in the series and some merely mentioned in his past. A good read but slow at times. Fans will like the book.

If you are a Southerner and have any ties to Nahlens { New Orleans} you will want to keep reading. This tale could have been written as he sat in the Cafe du Mond. Burke's style is florid and you will feel the breezes from the Bayou.
